The decisions we make in this moment are based in either love or fear
Jim Carrey gives funny speech for graduates in Iowa
Jim Carrey is following Sandra Bullock’s example. The actor took the podium at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa on May 24 to deliver a message to the 2014 graduates. While Sandra was wise and supportive, Jim was funny and smart.
“I want to thank the trustees, the administrators, the faculty of MUM for creating an institution worthy of Maharishi’s ideals of education, as well as enabling the students through transcendental education and vedic knowledge to slack off twice a day for an hour and a half. The decisions we make in this moment are based in either love or fear. So many of us chose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect so we never ask the universe for it. I’m saying I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it. And if it doesn’t happen for you right away, it’s only because the universe is so busy fulfilling my order”, he said.
The audience laughed and cheered for Carrey as he spoke. At the end, the actor received an honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Causa from the university.
